There are areas of the UK which have been left behind for many years, and even in relatively prosperous areas there are huge inequalities and entrenched poverty.

We believe that where you happen to be born should not affect your ability to live a happy and fruitful life.

We will use our tools and resources, alongside partners rooted locally and nationally, to address these issues and help enable thriving and inclusive communities in the long term.


Social investment has a role to play in addressing these issues, but we believe it’s just one part of the solution.

Only by working with others – who bring a range of complementary tools, skills, experience and resources – will we be able communities to develop and flourish.

Creating long-term positive social change in this area can be complex. We’re committed to learning, sharing our learning, and updating our approach as we go.
